Schools Programs

We have some very talented instructors who are great at working with kids. What better sport for the class during a hot summer afternoon? There are a number of different options to suit your needs.

Weekly lessons: We can fit in to your school sport schedule. The PaddleOz program will soon be part of the Sporting Schools initiative.

Come and Try: We can run a once-off come and try session for your students

Motivational Speaking: Our Olympians and elite athletes can come to your school and introduce students to the sport during class or assembly.

Teacher training and assessment: PaddleNSW is a Paddle Australia National Training Provider. We run instructor and guide courses that give the necessary qualifications to instruct paddling and guide trips.

Schools Championships: Some of our disciplines conduct regional, state and national level championship events for schools. This is a great way to encourage friendly competition, motivation and to meet people in the sport from other areas.
